Roles enable you to group the permissions required to perform tasks associated with a job, such as the job of database administrator. You can then grant the role to users rather than granting individual permissions needed for each task. You can add custom roles to your organization and grant them to the users who are responsible for performing particular jobs.

You are logged in to Data Director.

You have the OrgAdmin role with permissions on all objects in the organization, or permissions for the organization in which to create the role.
